Exploring America’s Backyard

Union Pacific Railroad’s history with the national parks started with creating iconic western parks like Yellowstone, Zion, Grand Canyon and Death Valley, when the railroad provided access to pristine landscapes otherwise virtually impossible to visit.

As a premier Find Your Park partner and the largest private sponsor of Open OutDoors for Kids, Union Pacific builds on this legacy by encouraging young adventurers to explore America's backyard. The railroad's support will provide national park experiences for thousands of students throughout the 23 states where Union Pacific operates.
